Kudos librarians! public libraries await you.

The entry of new librarian's who passed the 2009 licensure examination given by the Professional Regulation's Commission last November 10 and 11 in the cities of Manila, Baguio, Cebu, Davao and Legazpi, is a sign of our continuing effort to make librarian profession at par with other profession.

As a public librarian, I congratulates them for choosing the profession.

These librarians have been with us, exploring, observing and knowing the libraries and the librarians for several years. How I wish they would consider working in public libraries and feel how it is like to serve the public.

There are 81 provinces, 136 cities and 1,495 municipalities all over the country and these local government units essentially should have a dynamic, fresh and competent information professionals. How many of them have libraries and how many of them have dedicated librarians we can speak of? Thus, when we are talking of learning, the next stop is the library. And, SOME Pinoy public libraries have something to offer however, lacks the force to undertake.. and to do away with it gradually, it need librarians - young librarians.
